Two people have been arrested by police investigating a recent shooting and stabbing incident in Barking.

Officers were called shortly before 4am last Monday - May 2 - to reports of a shooting in Hertford Road.

At the scene, they found a man in his 20s suffering from stab injuries which were not life-threatening.

A short time later, it emerged that a man and woman had self-presented at an east London hospital.

The man had sustained a gunshot wound to his leg which was not life-threatening, while the woman had suffered minor injuries consistent with grazing from a bullet.

A 27-year-old man and 31-year-old woman were subsequently arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

The man has been released on bail - to return on a date in late May - while the woman has been released under investigation pending further enquiries.

It is thought that all three people sustained their injuries in the Hertford Road area.
